Are you aware of the recent announcement of NADART’s retirement plan transition? It seems EMPOWER (Great West Life) will take on the task of retirement plan administrator. In light of this, it may be prudent to take a more proactive approach and investigate the change and alternatives available to you. Your years of loyalty to NADART are no doubt strong and perhaps this transition causes some confusion, or leaves you with a feeling of being cut loose. You need to take care of your employees and review your responsibilities as a 401k plan sponsor now that your plan will no longer be tied to the National Auto Dealer Association, as it has been for decades. .

We offer a no cost / no obligation benchmark comparison of your plan expenses to our guides. You may want to benchmark how your retirement plans compare to our industry-wide database, both in terms of what you want in the way of services, and what those features should actually cost versus what you may be paying. The fiduciary requirements for plan sponsors require the competitive input available for your retirement plans. You may be more comfortable receiving that information from someone who understands your business.
